At New Hope, our pastor does an excellent job teaching the Word as he preaches. For more than a year, he preached through Luke’s treatise that the King James crew called “The ACTS of the Apostles.” What is a treatise? The Greek is logos which should sound familiar to everyone. The concordance calls it “word” …
We’re not quite two weeks into a new year, but the heaviness of 2020 still weighs on hearts and minds. We want to claim that a new year fills us with new hope, but that’s not always the case.
Let’s face it, we know we should read the Bible every day. Maybe you even set aside time to do it (I recommend the morning). But what should you read? Everyone needs a plan for their scripture reading time.
A certain satisfaction comes from typing 2020 for the last time. Okay, it probably isn’t the last time, but after the craziness encapsulated in this calendar year, my human compulsion is to say “good riddance.”

Whether it's Christmas or any time of the year, there’s so much to be gleaned from learning about the many names of Jesus Christ. They carry weighty meaning and give insight into his character.
In this selfish world, Christmas seems to be about buying more things, getting more things. Everyone wants what they want, and they're willing to run up a credit card bill to get it.
But that's not what Christmas is about. Let's take a few minutes to consider that God has the power to grant our every wish.
Our pastor began preaching about Jesus Christ from the Book of Acts on March 31, 2019. This past Sunday, he finished preaching through this amazing book of history. The sermon was titled “Mission Accomplished” and focused on the final chapter, which covers the Apostle Paul’s eventual arrival to Rome and his first interactions with both …
Every day should begin with “Thank You, Lord” and end with the same. November, with Thanksgiving as the national holiday celebrated in the US, has become a month of gratitude.
Thanksgiving, the U.S. national holiday, is coming next week. In the Christian life, every day should be a day of thanksgiving.
